News and Information about Course Tools

MyPCC New Login ScreenMyPCC is scheduled for a refresh on June 14, 2016. The new Course Tools, along with training opportunities, will be available to faculty soon. Instructors will use the new tools for summer term courses; to provide adequate time to do so, PCC's IT department is working hard to make the tools available as early as possible. The content on this page is being updated to support the new version; updated materials will be posted soon. Check back regularly for updated information.

There are several notable changes coming to MyPCC Course Tools that instructors will want to know about. For example, instructors will need to retrieve the materials they wish to keep from the current interface as this will not be done for them.

Sneak Peek sessions at each campus have concluded but training is available for Summer term faculty. Find out and register from our training workshop schedule.

A group demo of MyPCC Course tools is available for your department or committee meeting. Please contact Steve Beining to arrange for a demo.

What are Course Tools?

Course tools are applications that allow you to interact with your students in a variety of ways via the MyPCC portal. Course tools can be used to foster communication in and out of the classroom through email and discussions, and to share course files, links, photos and homework.

Course tools can do the following:

  • easily send email to your class
  • make course announcements
  • provide a course discussion area & chat
  • post links to websites
  • upload images & files for current term
  • easily clone content from term to term
